Bike Rodeo In Tyler

   Riding a bicycle and free pizza to go with it. What more could a kid ask for?  That was the formula for fun and education today at a bike rodeo in Tyler. About a dozen kids turned out for the Tyler Police Department's bicycle safety training and rodeo at Harvey Hall. Members of the department's bike team and emergency response team were on hand to teach the rules of the road, and inspect the children's bikes.

    The kids went through drills on how to ride safely on public roads, and organizers say it's one lecture that turns out to be fun for the kids. The kids were also given free bike helmets, courtesy of the Tyler Police Department.
